 Sometimes we are dazed 
and dumbfounded anew
Amazed by how much 
God loves me and you
Sometimes we hardly 
know where to start
To tell of the wonder
 that urges the heart
To praise the One worthy 
of all attention
His ways beyond earthly 
Sometimes we are wholly 
and humbly awed
In the shadow of angels 
through the mercies of God

Heart of worship let me prove
‘Neath the scepter of Thy love
‘Neath the shadow of Thy gaze
Lord, I bow in humble praise

For the beauty of Thy land
For Thy mercy’s gracious hand
For death-cursed deliverance
For Thy faithful providence

For the favors of Thy grace
For Thy faithful promises
And the comfort that You send
For Thy All that has no end

For Thy whispers deep within
For Thy forgiveness of sin
For Thy strength in joy or strife
For Thy death to purchase life

For Thy power unsurpassed
For Thy truth to hold us fast
For Thy purpose undeterred
For Thy everlasting word

For Thy hope steadfast and sure
For Thy salvation secure
For Companionship divine
That unmerited, is mine

  Honor the Lord your God, worship only him, 
and make your promises in his name alone.

 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,”
Says the Lord of hosts,
“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.
